Do you know how dangerous working on the railroad can be? Have you ever seen a train up close? Want to see how robots can help innovate the level of safety for railroads? If so, then we have the challenge for you!
You will have the opportunity to analyze video frames, and create an algorithm to detect and track an object within those frames. We’re looking for innovative solutions that can be applied to robots in real world applications. Together we can help strive towards zero reportable incidents while working on the railroad!
Machine vision and robotic perception will change the world, and is one of the leading technologies in the race to enable industrial field robotics. Developing perception algorithms will enable a quantum leap in the ability to deploy these robots in the field, making these environments better for machines and safer for people. For this challenge, $20,000 in prize money is available as incentive to create an algorithm to help improve detecting and tracking items on railcars.
Lets make working on the railroad as safe as possible!
